Endovascular Aneurysm Repair
Call (718) 283-7000 for an appointment with an Aortic specialist or request an appointment online.
Endovascular Aneurysm Repair can be done by utilizing stents as a minimally invasive approach. Specialized devices with branches and fenestrations are also available to treat complex thoracic abdominal aneurysms. We are the only center in Brooklyn that has this program.
The catheter guides an expandable stent graft through the blood vessels to the location of the aneurysm, thereby eliminating the need to perform open heart surgery directly on the aorta. The stent graft acts like a barrier between the blood and the diseased portion of the aorta preventing further growth or leakage.
